Teen driver said he sped because he needed to go to bathroom after eating hot wings

A Canadian teenage driver came up with a rather unusual excuse for speeding, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Manitoba. 

Authorities tweeted last Thursday that they pulled over a 16-year-old for going in 170 kilometers per hour (105.6 mph) in a Chevrolet Camaro. The teenager said he was speeding because he had "too many hot wings and needed a bathroom."

Unfortunately, the cops were unconvinced and fined the unidentified adolescent $966 for speeding and an additional $203 for driving without a supervising driver. 

When a Twitter user asked whether the minor would have his license revoked, law enforcement said it would be up to the Manitoba Public Insurance to decide but that it was "most likely."

Other users decided to have a little bit of fun with the incident. 

"Clearly you guys have no sympathy for the struggling young man," one person wrote. 

One was less concerned about the teenager's reckless driving and more interested in the wings. 

"Where did he get the hot wings?" the user wrote. "Me and the boys have been looking for some killer wings ever since this hot ones show starting taking off on the Youtube." 

As of Tuesday, the police's tweet has been liked over 1,000 times.
